We've been chatting with Sarah Clark, our new Internal Communications Executive, about her role and the impact she hopes to make through internal communications! Sarah has recently joined our comms team and has already made a huge impact.
What’s a day in your life like?
My role is quite different week-to-week, it all depends on which projects need announcing, which awareness days we are focusing on, and who needs my assistance!
I’ve recently joined Mental Health Concern and Insight IAPT, so as I visit more of the services I’m getting a good feel for what it means to be part of such a life-changing organisation.
Describe your role in 3 words.
Paparazzi, investigator, creator.
What is it about your work that gets you out of bed in the morning?
Knowing that I am supporting colleagues with their wellbeing, and making our communications fun and that bit more streamlined.
What is the most fulfilling thing about your work?
Bringing an idea or project to life.
If a group or individual has a vision, supporting with that and launching it with colleagues is something I thoroughly enjoy.
Working with new groups you get to know people much better, for example our recent Dyslexia Awareness Week activities. People coming together to support and help create personal and relatable content.
What is the most challenging thing about your work?
What are you most excited about achieving through your role?
I’m super excited to see where we can go with launching Yammer! Everyone has their preferred methods of communicating, but so far I’ve had a lot of positive feedback on Yammer. I expect there to be some wobbles but I’m enjoying the process!
Also, our plans for a rebooted intranet in 2023…
We’re looking forward to seeing how Sarah’s innovations are going to make our communications more accessible and engaging, to keep our colleagues connected!
